Linda M. Crate- Two Poems

to my vampire lover

you make me angry
i'd just love
to shove
down your throat
and stake you
beneath a blood red moon,
yet i know i
never could
no matter how furious
you make me
i believe in a thing
called love;
and i'd never stopped
nor will i ever
even if you can't love
me, even if you
killed me
i could never haunt you

because i love
you, and that's why i
let you shove me
away because sometimes
when you love someone you have to
let go even if i could never let you go.

the sweetest song

if i could set the moon
on fire
i'd let the embers
dance the
balm of your name
against my flesh
to weep with the willows,
and perhaps
you think lucy a little too
maybe i am,
but rose petals could never
kiss me with the
of your laughter or cry
me the petals
of your soft lips

if the stars were mine i'd
give them all to you
so darkness would
never shroud you with it's
and i wish you could see
no matter how
bad you think you are for me
you're the one that
makes my soul sing the sweetest.
